Deb Zeller Wins Lens on Lake Minnetonka Photo Contest in the Pets Category

Deb Zeller of Victoria won first place in the Pets category for 2014’s Lens on Lake Minnetonka photo contest. Her photo, “Water Dog,” features her nephew, John Kenison, and his dog, Buddy. Zeller says she captured the moment spontaneously at her birthday celebration.

“The whole family got together and we were having a fun day at the lake. Buddy loves to be on the water but not in the water,” she says. “He would not get off the kayak!”

Minnetonka Resident Eric Raarup Snaps Photo of the Winter Funk

In December 2012, Minnetonka resident Eric Raarup snapped the quintessential Minnesota winter shot: an almost iced-over lake. For Raarup and others, this sight signals the dawning of the winter season.

Raarup, who says he has “always leaned toward the simple images,” took this photo, which shows an eerie black-and-white background with the wooden dock jutting out onto Liz Lake. Despite the foggy chill, Raarup shot this particular scene before the first snowfall. “I thought it captured that bleak feeling,” he explains.
